Servings 12 truffles

Ingredients
  

  • 4 tbsp melted raw cacao butter
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 4 tbsp raw honey
  • 3/4 cup 60gr. cacao powder plus extra for rolling
  • 4 tbsp orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 100 gr. dark chocolate bar finely chopped
  • Orange peel strips, to decorate optional

Instructions
 

  • Over a slow heat, place the chopped cacao butter in a medium heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and melt gently stirring all the time. Using a potato peeler, remove the peel of the orange, squeeze and preserve the juice. Remove from the heat, add the melted coconut oil and honey and whisk until well combined.
  • Add the cacao powder, orange juice and sea salt and whisk until thick and smooth. Place in the freezer for about 5 to 8 minutes until the mixture is firm. Remove the bowl from the freezer. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out around 2,5 cm size balls and roll them between your palms. 
  • Place the chopped chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and, using a metal spoon, stir until melted and smooth. Allow standing at room temperature for 10 minutes. 
  • Using two forks dip the truffles in the melted chocolate, allowing any excess to drip off and reserving the remaining chocolate, and place on a lightly greased wire rack set over foil paper. Place in the fridge overnight or until set. 
  • Meanwhile, cut some orange peel in fine strips and dip in the remaining melted chocolate, reheating if necessary.
  • Dust the truffles with the extra cacao powder and top with orange peel strips (optional). Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes

Tip: Truffles will keep refrigerated for 3–4 days. Dust in the extra cocoa just before serving.
